updates from the studio


My friends, I am going to be honest- things have been a little bit chaotic around here. While we are settling into our new life, we are still trying get used to all of the changes. Picking up your life with a baby, a business and starting over is challenging and I have been doing my best to get organized and caught up on so many things! I'm well overdue for a little update from the studio- there are number of things going on over here on the creative front and lots to share in the days to come. Here is a quick update...

I am FINALLY starting to get settled into my new studio space! I still have lots of boxes to unpack (4 months after moving in) but I have been productive and busy creating in my space! I've had to get used to my studio being away from home- for so many years I made art somewhere in the house (spare rooms, converted garage, etc) and even though my new space is a five minute drive- it has taken me some time to get used to leaving home. I am thrilled that this space can double as a classroom and retreat venue and even more THRILLED that my first retreat  went off without a hitch.

This last weekend I taught a one day class- Larger Than Life- in my studio and what a great time we had. It was a small and intimate class and I cannot tell you how cool it was to invite creative souls into my space to spread out all over the floor and paint together all day! I am so excited for the things that I have planned for the future. In the weeks and months ahead I will be announcing more events and classes in my studio so stay tuned!

I will also be announcing some new online classes in the months ahead and the next one will be dedicated to holiday creating! I will be sharing all the details (and a giveaway) next week!

With our move my online shop has been neglected but not for long! I will be adding all kinds of new things including more  hand carved stamps.
